Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) Career Grant

The HOPE Career Grant can be the boost a student needs to get started on a rewarding career in a well-paying job, and without accumulating a lot of student debt. It also helps Georgia employers by creating a pipeline of skilled workers they can hire well into the future.

Georgia has partnered with state agencies, private organizations, and businesses to find solutions that ensure a workforce pipeline for companies. The HOPE Career Grant (formerly Strategic Industries Workforce Development Grant) directly addresses specific workforce needs. HOPE Career Grant is available to Georgia residents who are enrolled in specific certificate or diploma programs. You must be eligible for, and receiving, the HOPE Grant or Zell Miller Grant to be awarded the HOPE Career Grant. This grant provides assistance with educational costs that are not covered by the HOPE or Zell Miller Grants.

To be eligible for the HOPE Career Grant, students must first qualify for and be receiving the HOPE Grant. Please review eligibility requirements below. Students will still be responsible for student fees and any equipment necessary, although in some cases, financial aid is available for those as well.

Eligibility for the HOPE Grant

Basic Eligibility
All HOPE programs require students to meet basic requirements. An eligible student must:

  1. Meet HOPE’s U.S. citizenship or eligible non-citizen requirements;
  2. Be a legal resident of Georgia;
  3. Meet enrollment requirements;
  4. Be in compliance with Selective Service registration requirements;
  5. Meet academic achievement standards;
  6. Be in good standing on all student loans or other financial aid programs;
  7. Be in compliance with the Georgia Drug-Free Postsecondary Education Act of 1990;
  8. Not have exceeded the maximum award limits for any HOPE program;

Program Eligibility
Full-time enrollment in a certificate or diploma program is not required and students are not required to graduate from high school with a specific GPA, however, they must have a postsecondary cumulative 2.0 GPA, at certain checkpoints, in order to maintain eligibility.

Note:
A student who received a high school diploma (High School Postsecondary Graduation Opportunity Plan) by earning a technical college diploma or two technical college certificates, in one career pathway identified by the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), may be eligible for the HOPE Grant, up to 30 degree hours. The student must be enrolled in an associate degree program at a TCSG institution in order to receive the HOPE Grant. After payment for 30 semester hours, the student is no longer eligible for HOPE Grant while enrolled in a degree level program. The student must then meet the HOPE Scholarship eligibility requirements at the 30 semester hour checkpoint.
